Hi. Do you know what pedal/amp is Joyo Chopper-Z based on? In pair with Joyo American sound it sounds amazingly!

Oh, and I can add that the Vintage Phase is based on the "script" version of the phase 90. Partly traced the circuitry a while ago. Uses different (cheaper?) transistors but still sounds excellent.

The JF-09 tremolo is certainly not a clone/copy of the Tremodillo, because on pictures of the JF-09 circuit I saw a vactrol (ldr+led in one case) proofing it's a optical tremolo, which the Tremodillo certainly isn't. The Tremodillo uses a transistor as a variable resistor to obtain the tremolo effect. Here are pics of the circuitry of both: https://ocdresearcher.blogspot.com/2015/03/inside-joyo-tremolo-jf-09-pedal.html?m=1 https://pedaldoctor.com/Diaz.html
